Thank you for the great Djembe drumming whilst we watched the gorgeous sunset. Great spot for a large cold bintang, lovely spring rolls and beautiful view. Really easy to get to, we were staying on main strip and hired bikes and cycled round. Only 10 mins! Best place we visited that side of Gili T!

This idyllic beachfront hideaway is perfect for getting away from the busy strip of Gili T. It has the best sunset view on the island, with beach beanbags and usually live djembe drum soundtrack. The rooms are gorgeous individual thatched wooden huts, with beautiful bathrooms - you can shower looking up at the stars! The staff are friendly and helpful.... More

This place is great for the right people. The exile is for those who come to gili T for the excitement, yet want to get away, love a good djembe session , and think a 10 minute bike ride around an island to get home is a good thing. The guys who work here make it happen. They wait on... More

Amazing place for sunset lovers. Good breakfast and very chilled out staff. Rooms are functional, though a bit small. Very quiet place a few minutes away by bike from the main street and restaurants/ bars/ diving schools.

With affordable price for drinks and very friendly staffs and owner, this place is the best hangout on the island. However, it is pretty far from other places. If you're looking for some place quiet, this is the place for you.

The Exile for a reason. Location is the draw, with it being away from 'sentral' you have a better feel of Island Life! Staff are are of great humour and efficient... Always keen to get the drums out to watch the sunset from the best place on the island!

Stumbled across this place as we were cycling around the Island and ended up staying 3 nights. Beautiful clean beach, wonderful food, scrummy breakfast provided every morning (even able to each on the beach). We hired out lumbung (hut) which was super clean with outside bathroom and bamboo shower was a truly magical experience. It is slightly further away to... More

Cheap and decent food with live drum circle at sunset right on the beach. Sit on bamboo benches and lounge chairs. Or you can sit in the soft turtle grass in shallow water and watch the sun set over Mount Agung. I recommend the Bumbu Bali fish dish. Staff is chatty but prompt, unlike the slow (and sometimes negligent) service... More
